Special Nurturing Notice
Puppies less than 2 lbs require the special care and attention the first 2 weeks in their new home. They need to eat every 2-3 hours, starting with their arrival.
A crossbreed between the Maltese and the Yorkshire Terrier, the Morkie, also affectionately known as the Yorktese or Morkshire Terrier was first bred in the 1990’s here in the United States as a designer puppy. Since then it has gained considerable popularity for its perfect combination of intelligence and beauty. While, these dogs make for sweet, loyal and loveable pets, they can often become quite bullheaded and territorial if not properly trained early on. Prior experience with a smaller breed is recommended.
Appearance and Grooming
Though the coats tend to be soft, rather long and hypoallergenic with colors typically ranging from solid white to black and tan and every color and combination in between, it is difficult to predict each litter. The unpredictable diversity is what makes these pooches so desirable. Regardless of its coat, this crossbreed needs to be brushed several times a week to keep the coat from matting or tangling. In addition to routine brushing, regular bathing is important to keep their coat healthy and lush.
Despite their tiny size this breed makes for a spirited and intelligent pet. Its inherited sense of fearlessness and energy from its Maltese parent shines through as these dogs are easily excitable and happy to greet anybody they meet. Underneath all of that energy and sometimes mischief these dogs are true lap dogs with a truly sweet and loving nature.
Family and Companionship
It is an obedient and loyal pup and its friendly personality helps it to make fast connections. It doesn’t like to be alone and suffers when it’s not appreciated and loved. It loves to play or curl up on the couch for a nap and requires frequent human companionship. Its loyalty and devotion tends to make this devoted dog very protective of its owner and family. As an adaptable and easy going pooch and while their size makes them ideal pets for apartment dwellers, they can be a problem for your neighbors as they love to bark. When left alone, this little yapper will bark until someone comes home to be with him, which doesn’t bode well for good relationships with close neighbors. This loveable ball of fluff is perfect for an owner who can take them wherever they go.
This breed doesn’t require too much exercise. A couple of brisk walks throughout the day and some active play time will provide the exercise your puppy needs to stay healthy and fit. Morkies should never be left off leash to or unattended during outside play unless they are in a securely fenced in area. If you live in an area where birds of prey are known to roam, you must pay particular attention not to leave your pooch unattended.
Training and Socialization
It has the Yorkshire’s intelligence and therefore is easily trainable, however it can be a little bit stubborn which may require a gentle, firm and patient trainer. It is imperative for it to be properly trained at a young age. These pint size puppies have strong personality traits and think they are much larger than they actually are and as such may try to dominate their owner and smaller animals.

We love our little Ethan to bits. What an adorable little man. Matt was excellent with helping us and with the transportation of our pup! Thanks again!
We purchased our puppy in November. Every one that we had communication with at Premier Pups were very pleasant to deal with. Mr. Mickey is a grown up name for such a little guy, but he carries it well. As you see in the photo, he loves to help out on the computer. :) He's been a healthy and delightful dog and we're on the hunt for a playmate for Mr. Mickey from Premier Pups.
We adopted Chloe (formerly Danielle) in September. She is such a spunky little girl with personality galore. She and our 10 year old Maltese are becoming friends and the kids love to play with her. We were hesitant at first to choose a puppy only with a photo and to ship such a little puppy on a plane, but she is healthy as can be. We couldn't be happier with our decision.
Tomorrow 11/11/19 our baby girl Baila turns one! She has been a absolute joy in my life... almost another child! Her demeanor is amazing! Baila goes to work with me in a office setting everyday with no issues. Everybody loves her! I’m so thankful for premier pups, it’s the best decision I could have ever made. We love are little girl more now then words could say!
Absolutely in love and impressed with how premier pups has responded to all my questions and checked in everyday.
We got our Morkie Benji(previously named Ralph) He is so playful and spoiled he's already gone to vacations with us and is always happy. He is so tiny we can tKe him pretty much everywhere.Everytime someone sees my 3 year ild holding him they think he is a stuffed toy. He is so perfect !
He is great! I would refer premier pups to anyone who is looking for a well taken care of puppy. Jay came to us healthy and happy and continues to grow. He's a great addition to our family and we love him!
We love our new Morkie Teacup Furr Baby she's blessed our family with her personality. She loves to cuddle play and isn't a barker. We have had such a great experience with premier pup from Ohio! Thank you Premier and Mike for calling Daily to check up on our Tink! Nita in Illinois
We were a little hesitant to purchase a pet online but everyone was so helpful and their facility is very clean neat friendly staff and we couldn't be happier with our little Mitzy
I had been searching for a puppy for awhile and was nervous about finding the right place to get a puppy from online. I am very glad I found Premier Pups, the entire process was very smooth and efficient. As you can see from the picture, Piper is doing wonderful. She is a joy to have around and very spoiled already!!
